Course Description

The course is located on the Mullet Peninsula on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. It was fully opened by 1995 and is situated in 260 acres and consists of 27 holes, formed by three loops of nine. This impressive course was the last links course to be designed by Eddie Hackett and many would say his best. It certainly proffers many challenges to those who play here. Your initial reaction when you arrive at this wonderful venue is that something special awaits and you will not be mistaken.

This natural links course has been designed around the impressive sand dunes, and overlooks Blacksod Bay and the wild Atlantic Ocean. Much of the natural landscape was used in the course with few alterations and the result is a pure and natural course that is joyous to play. Each hole is unique and presents a different test, and with the Atlantic Ocean greeting you on many of the holes, wind is sure to play a major factor. Your limitations will be meet as you battle the fairways, intimidating drives and sand traps, this course will give you a run for your money, from the blind shots over the large dunes to the unseen pot bunkers, the undulating course, and then there is the incredible changes in elevation, not easy on the legs. Throughout your game you will need to pause as some creative shot-making and course decisions will have to be made.

All the challenges of this course are undoubtably cancelled out by the sheer beauty of the region, many holes have breathtaking views across the Atlantic and nearby islands. It has been described as "natures gift to golf".

Our Favourite Hole

The forerunner here is the 11th hole. This par 4 hole has stunning views from the tee once you reach it, take time out to admire it, it is probably the best view on the course, then consider your shot. The green is behind the large hill and errant shots to the right or left will be severely punished on this hole.
